Mycoinsecticide in a Liquid Emulsifiable Suspension
Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA
BotaniGard ES uses Beauveria bassiana, a beneficial fungus, to target and control a wide variety of soft-bodied insects in greenhouse, field and nursery crops such as Whiteflies, Thrips, Aphids, Psyllids, Mealybugs, scarab beetles and Weevils. This product also controls difficult pests such as chinch bugs, Leafhoppers and stem-boring Lepidoptera.
BotaniGard ES is registered for an extensive number of ornamentals and edible crops such as herbs, spices, vegetables, fruits and berries. There is no limit to the number of times that BotaniGard ES can be applied in a season. A weekly application program can prevent insect population explosions and provide a level of control equal to or better than conventional chemical programs. Additionally, it has a 0-hour pre-harvest interval allowing it to be sprayed up until the day of harvest (excluding cannabis). It has a 4-hour REI.
* Note: BotaniGard ES is not recommended for use on tomatoes. For control of tomato pest insects using Beauveria bassiana, apply BotaniGard 22WP instead.
